Vessels of all Sizes. From our smallest boat Eve of St Mawes a pilot cutter, through Bessie Ellen a two masted ketch up to three masted square rigger Europa.
You are lucky that you already know you are going to enjoy sailing and what we can offer is a great variety of different vessels to sail on; each of which has its own special character.
Horses for Courses
Making up a belaying pin on a tall ship is defiantly done without putting a locking turn on the rope, yet on little Eve of St Mawes our belaying pins are so small and the things you want to keep up so important we do put a locking turn on ropes holding sails aloft.
So every vessel you sail on is likely to do things differently, the trick is to understand the principles and watch how they are applied on your voyage.
It’s more than knowing the ropes.
Working the ropes is one thing learning the crew on board is equally important if you want to have a pleasant voyage. That is why we only choose vessels that encourage people to get involved and believe that the sailing is important.
Wind and tide
No two voyages are ever identical, not only do the people change, the tides and winds are in constant flux and keeping a weather eye open says it all.
We try to give the best food you can get afloat on sailing ships and with so many voyages available the world is your oyster.
